Finger or brain trouble, here is the correction :

 >NUMBER -> INTEGER when transporting schemas from Oracle to Pg.
 >(This needs a little care - as NUMBER in Oracle has bigger *precision* 
than INTEGER in Pg)

Thinking about this a bit more, its probably fine to just substitute 
NUMERIC for NUMBER, but obviously INTEGER is going to perform better if 
it can be used.
